Siglo XIX. En una remota aldea de Dinamarca, dominada por el puritanismo, dos ancianas hermanas, que han permanecido solteras, recuerdan con nostalgia su lejana juventud y la rígida educación que las obligó a renunciar a la felicidad. La aparición de Babette, que llega desde París, huyendo del Terror, cambiará sus vidas. La recién llegada tendrá pronto ocasión de corresponder a la bondad y al calor con que fue acogida. Un premio de lotería le permite organizar una opulenta cena con los mejores platos y vinos de la gastronomía francesa. Todos los vecinos aceptan la invitación, pero se ponen previamente de acuerdo para no dar muestras de una satisfacción que sería pecaminosa. Pero, poco a poco, en un ceremonial intenso y emotivo, van cediendo a los placeres de la cocina francesa. (FILMAFFINITY)

Der Bürgerkrieg, der im Paris des Jahres 1871 tobt, zwingt die Meisterköchin Babette zur Flucht in ein kleines Fischerdorf an der Küste Jütlands. Hier lebt ein rauhes, wortkarges Volk, das nach der streng protestantischen Lehre des Dorfpfarrers ein kärgliches Leben in Enthaltsamkeit und Demut fristet. Jahre vergehen. Babette arbeitet als Haushälterin für Philippa und Martina, die beiden altjüngferlichen Töchter des längst verstorbenen Dorfpfarrers. Das anfängliche Mißtrauen der Dorfbewohner ist inzwischen einer zurückhaltenden Sympathie für die geheimnisvolle Französin gewichen, die es sogar versteht, aus getrocknetem Fisch und Brotsuppe einen bescheidenen Genuß zu zaubern. Da erreicht Babette aus ihrer Heimat ein überraschender Lottogewinn, mit dem sie sich einen langgehegten Wunsch erfüllt: Sie lädt die kleine Gemeinde zu Ehren des 100. Geburtstages des Dorfpfarrers zu einem echten französischen Diner ein. Und während die erlesenen französischen Genüsse langsam die asketischen Regeln der Dorfbewohner auf den Kopf stellen, enthüllt Babette ihr Geheimnis
